When our family moves we look a bit like the Beverly Hillbillies. You know, our old pick-up is loaded to the gunwhales. Sometimes we have our livestock hauling contraption built from plywood on the back, sometimes we don’t, we just load up the back and away we go. (I normally sit in the front seat though and not on top of everything in a rocking chair.)
Most people want to do things a bit fancier though with moving blankets, moving pads, and furniture blankets, and I suppose that’s okay too ;). Getting some padding DOES reduce scratches and dings for sure!
